|2009: 90 Points - Ian d'Agata, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Bright red. Cool, floral aromas of red cherry, strawberry and menthol show an almost pungent quality. Smooth and fairly intensely flavored, with delicious red berry and herbal flavors given shape by bright acidity. Shows an almost pinot noir-like verve on the fresh, long, fine-grained finish. In recent years, this has been far and away the estate's best wine, and it's no different this year. "
2009: 88 Points - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Frappato impresses for its silky red fruit and caressing personality. The delicate texture and body lend themselves nicely to serving this with a slight chill during the summer months. The balance here is lovely."
2009: 87 Points - Monica Lerner, Wine Enthusiast: "Il Frappato is a light, fruity red wine that is vinified in stainless steel to maintain its lively raspberry and blueberry flavors. It can be served slightly chilled and goes down easily with vegetables, veal or white meat. "
